A single 6-sided die is rolled. What is the probability of rolling a number that is not 4?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

We will assume that thsi is a regular 6-sided die numbered from 1 to 6

Then the outcomes are: 1,2,3,4,5,6

Then the probability of chosen a 4 = 1/6

Then the probability of rolling a number that is NOT 4 is:

P(not 4)= 1- P(4)

             = 1 - 1/6

              = 5/6

Then the probability is 5/6
